In China, many women say yes. ABC News reports that searches for "rent-a-boyfirned" have gone up 884% this year, presumably due to the unusual proximity of the Chinese Lunar New Year and Valentine's Day. And, while these services come at a price, it's nothing like the exorbitant rates we hear about on Law & Order: SVU. Of course, you have to factor in exchange rates and local price points, but a full day of fun will cost you about $128. Just going shopping? That'll be $6.42 an hour. The movies? $8, or (this is our favorite part), $16 if it's a horror flick.
There's absolutely no sex involved in these transactions, just companionship (hugs, handshakes, and kisses on the forehead come free). In fact, rented boyfriends have a clause in the contract that should they get handsy with a client, they'll quickly end up in jail. Sounds like good, clean fun to us. Now,would you try it?
